The River of Love

In the desert that this empty life can be

There's a stream to quench tired and thirsty souls

Beyond religion and the fruitless schemes of man

From the throne of God to the driest heart it flows

 

The river of love a river that's living eternal and free
The river of love that takes us from here to the place we were meant to be

With Him oh what a blessing is the river within

 

Some will taste it others wade into their knees
But true life's for those who swim out over their heads
For in the deeper place where you're no longer in control

You gain the power to ride the Spirit's current instead

 

The river of love a river that's living eternal and free
The river of love that takes us from here to the place we were meant to be

With Him oh what a blessing is the river within

 

It's not found on an earthly map so leave your GPS behind

Faith alone can light the way if you desire you will find

 

The river of love a river that's living eternal and free
The river of love that takes us from here to the place we were meant to be

With Him oh what a blessing is the river within

Greater is He

Mr trial and temptation comes to greet

Says I'm a take you down boy leave you in defeat

I said I know you got some nasty tricks on up your sleeve

But God's word is true and here's what I believe

 

Greater is He who is in me than he who's in the world who's in the world
Greater is He who is in me than he who's in the world who's in the world

 

Miss you can't beat that sin she whispers in my ear
Says you'll never change boy you been prayin' and prayin' for years
And I'd be inclined to agree with her if not for this
Though the battle rages on my Father promises

 

Greater is He who is in me than he who's in the world who's in the world
Greater is He who is in me than he who's in the world who's in the world

 

My tribulation - He's greater
Pain I'm facin' - He's greater
Hopeless situation - He's greater   oh glory be
When satan's dissin' - He's greater
The mark I'm missin' - He's greater
Come and listen listen y'all  to the truth that sets me free

Bless the Lord

He is good and His mercy endures forever

On those who seek Him He pours His Spirit without measure

His grace and power flow to all who call upon His name

When I think on these things my heart is driven to proclaim

 

Oh oh oh oh bless the Lord oh my soul oh my soul

Oh oh oh oh bless the Lord oh my soul oh my soul

 

He is faithful even when our faith is cold and weak For

He promised there's a work in us He must complete

His righteousness is a path to lead His children home

Where one day we will stand and sing before his holy throne

 

Oh oh oh oh bless the Lord oh my soul oh my soul

Oh oh oh oh bless the Lord oh my soul oh my soul

 

Great is our God and greatly to be praised

There is peace there is joy when we follow in His ways

We're gonna follow and say

 

Oh oh oh oh bless the Lord oh my soul oh my soul

Oh oh oh oh bless the Lord oh my soul oh my soul

Speak to Me

Here I go again in this now familiar pose
Down on my knees to discover what the future holds
Friends and family they offer up their help
To win this latest hand in life which I've been dealt

 

But this decision is beyond what human eyes can see
It's effects could surely reach into eternity
So I want to honor you I want to pass this test

Give me the wisdom God you alone possess

 

Speak to me.. I really need to hear your voice
Speak to me Lord .. penetrating all this noise
Speak to me.. reveal the path that I should take

Speak to me Lord.. I'm listening for every word you say

 

I've made this same mistake so many times before
Rush to an answer and force my way to break down any door
A proud and blind man who always thought I knew what's right

But out of the darkness now I call upon your guiding light to

 

Speak to me.. I really need to hear your voice
Speak to me Lord .. penetrating all this noise
Speak to me.. reveal the path that I should take
Speak to me Lord.. I'm listening for every word you say

 

I've come to seek you Lord to seek your face
I bow before you before your throne of grace
Confusion fills my mind but onne thing I know
You have the words of life I need

Where else can I go..so

 

Speak to me.. I really need to hear your voice
Speak to me Lord .. penetrating all this noise
Speak to me.. reveal the path that I should take

Speak to me Lord.. I'm listening for every word you say

God Only Knows

Once I was young and bold stubborn pride ruled my heart
I thought the world was ripe for me to go and make my mark
I was the captain of my fate until I lost my way in the dark now

 

God only knows where the path is leading
Through these unfamiliar scenes all along the way
God only knows how I've come to need him
As He carries me each step that I make today

And what the future may propose God only knows

 

We make our best laid plans and strive to set our course
As if life bends it's knees to the choices we endorse

But it's a foolish man who schemes beyond tomorrow's door for

 

God only knows where the path is leading
Through these unfamiliar scenes all along the way
God only knows how I've come to need him
As He carries me each step that I make today
And where the winding river flows God only knows

Heaven is Real

There's government corruption endless strife and racial wars
News of Jihad terrorists coming to our shores
Tomorrow is uncertain no one knows what's in store
Word is on the street hope don't live here anymore

 

Evil does it's best to make us think this life is all there is
And there ain't no sense believing in religious promises
About a place someday where pain and death will cease to exist
But the cross still lights the way and the shining truth is this

 

Heaven is real  heaven is real
Whatever you may think or feel you can be sure
Heaven is real  heaven is real

 

Scientists and athiests all shout out their decree
We're nothin more than creatures that evolved from the sea
There's no better world awaiting for the souls of you and me

So we trade eternal longings for a treasure we can see

 

Seduced by the good life they always advertise
We get the house the car the membership but it never satisfies
And though we wish that there was something more most never realize

For those who put their faith and their trust in Jesus Christ

 

Heaven is real  heaven is real
Whatever you may think or feel you can be sure
Heaven is real  heaven is real

 

There was a time God walked among us as a man
To share the Father's love and His eternal plan
That through his death and resurrection we'd be saved

Now since his victory for us over the grave

 

Heaven is real  heaven is real
Whatever you may think or feel you can be sure

Heaven is real  heaven is real

 

lyrics copyright 2016 Scott Seabock

What is the Name

What is the name that is above every other
Jesus  Jesus
What is the name that makes the demons run for cover
Jesus  Jesus
What is the name by which all men must be saved
Jesus  Jesus
What is the name who destroyed the power of the grave
Jesus  Jesus

 

Give Him praise for He is worthy to be worshiped and adored
Every knee shall bow before Him
Every tongue shall confess that He alone is Lord

 

What is the name who called us out of darkness into light
Jesus  Jesus
What is the name who came that we may have abundant life
Jesus  Jesus
What is the name who pleads for us before the Father's throne
Jesus  Jesus
What is the name who promises we'll never walk alone
Jesus  Jesus

 

Give Him praise for He is worthy to be worshiped and adored
Every knee shall bow before Him
Every tongue shall confess that He alone is Lord

 

In His name there is power
To lift your spirits in your darkest hour
In His name there is salvation
Now and forever the only name we'll be praisin'

Jesus  Jesus

Wishing Well

They say have faith and be fervent when you pray
But most times I can't think of a single thing to say
Just believe and your life will surely change
But why's it take so long for God to ease the pain

 

It seems to come so very easy for the rest
I must be too broken up inside for God to bless
They say be still and you'll hear His voice within
But the only voice I hear is asking me again

 

How do you know how can you tell
If you've only been fooling your self
Maybe these prayers are no more help
Than throwing pennies in a wishing well

 

I really don't know how I'm supposed to feel
Is there some kind of sign to show me this is real
One shining moment when this suddenly makes sense
And this brand new life they talk about will be my experience

 

So I keep waiting waiting for heaven's door to open
But when you come up empty handed you know it's hard to keep on hopin'
I'd hate to think I've waisted so much time
Chasing the rainbows end I'm never gonna find so

 

How do you know how can you tell
If you've only been fooling your self
Maybe these prayers are no more help
Than throwing pennies in a wishing well

 

They say keep standing on the word so in each trial I'll prevail
BUt where do I stand when this all seems like a fairy tale

Neon Heart

She came forward at a youth retreat the summer she had turned sixteen
Looking for a way to ease the pain
She'd been hiding in the shadows of fear and insecurity
So when she heard the gospel truth she was ready for a change
Now like a sign that keeps on flashin'
And points the way to her new found passion

 

She's got a neon heart and a billboard soul
As she's advertising Jesus' love everywhere she goes
And the life she lives is like a full page ad that reads
I was once alone in the dark until He came and gave me
A neon heart

A neon heart

 

Her friends think it's all a passing phase and soon she'll be her same old self
Another teenage heartache just like them
But there's something real they can't deny that seems to come from someplace else
That lifts her up beyond the hurt again and again
Though they don't know the one she hopes in
She believes that door will open

 

Through a neon heart and a billboard soul
As she's advertising Jesus' love everywhere she goes
And the life she lives is like a full page ad that reads
I was once alone in the dark until He came and gave me
A neon heart
A neon heart

 

For her it's not a deep theology
She just came when He said follow me
And she received

a neon heart and a billboard soul
As she's advertising Jesus' love everywhere she goes
And the life she lives is like a full page ad that reads
I was once alone in the dark until He came and gave me
A neon heart
A neon heart

Now she's the light of the world with a neon heart
Now she's the light of the world with a neon heart

World Keeps Calling Me Back

I hear the voice of seducing lies forsake this gift of eternal life
True happiness you'll only find
In these pleasure filled pictures running through your mind
But they don't know what I've learned my past is like a stove that burns
So I keep my hands away and reach instead for a better way

 

Though the world keeps calling me back to where I was before
I've got something much better than that walking with the lord
While the world keeps chasing a rainbow that always seems to disappear
I've got a treasure in my heart that will grow
So much greater through each passing year
And forever.... yes forever

 

The battle's on it intensifies the closer that I get to Christ
The enemy he does his best to tempt me with illusions of happiness
Even my friends bound to the earth can't comprehend what heaven's worth
And so they strive for earthly gain and wonder why I just won't do the same

 

Well the world keeps calling me back to where I was before
But I've got something much better than that walking with the lord
While the world keeps chasing a rainbow that always seems to disappear
I've got a treasure in my heart that will grow
So much greater through each passing year
And forever.... yes forever

 

So I'm pressing on I'm pressing on I'm pressing on I'm pressing on
I'm pressing on I'm pressing on until this mess is gone I'll be pressing on

 

The world keeps calling me back
The world keeps calling me back
The world keeps calling me back

Your Word

Your word is a comfort to my soul... your word is the truth that sets me free
Your word is a light unto my path... your word is a lamp unto my feet

 

Help me hide it in my heart let it keep me from sin
Until the truth of who you are reveals your kingdom from within

 

Your word is the rising of the sun..your word is an ever faithful friend
Your word is a fire burning bright..your word leads me to the journey's end

 

Help me hide it in my heart let it keep me from sin
Until the truth of who you are reveals your kingdom from within

 

A beacon in the darkness a shelter from  the storm
A healing to my troubled life when my life is bruised and torn
A weary traveler's place of rest the lonely pilgrims compass home

The unseen path of mercy and grace that lead to heaven's throne

 

Help me hide it in my heart let it keep me from sin
Until the truth of who you are reveals your kingdom from within

Soul Love

I've got good friends and a close knit family
How they care for me brings a joy to my heart
Still there's times when this pain way down inside of me
Is beyond what they can do to rescue me from the dark
The only way is a ...

 

Soul love that's what I'm praying for give me
Soul love that's where the peace is peace is inside myself
Soul love something deep and pure give me
Soul love and it's Jesus Jesus and no one else

 

You might think God is a way out distant thing
Far removed from the trials of life
But the truth is that He came to live with humanity
And dwell in the hearts of believers to overcome stress and strife
That's why I need me some...

 

Soul love that's what I'm praying for give me
Soul love that's where the peace is peace is inside myself
Soul love something deep and pure give me

Soul love and it's Jesus Jesus and no one else

 

I think about the blood I think about the cross
I think about the sacrifice he made and the horrible cost
Then I think of all the world has to give that'll never be enough
'Cause when you're down desperate and dirty
Only one thing gonna lift you up and that's a...

 

Soul love that's what I'm praying for give me
Soul love that's where the peace is peace is inside myself
Soul love something deep and pure give me

Soul love and it's Jesus Jesus and no one else

Never Give Up

When the road I walk is dark and lonely
And none of my family or friends can be found
When the people that I trust in all disown me
And every dream I have comes crashing to the ground

 

Just the time I think that life is going to break me
And I want to turn to run away and give up the fight
I remember there is one who won't forsake me
If I learn to walk by faith and not by sight that's right so I

 

Never give up never give up never give up on my Lord
I'm gonna keep on trusting in God's word

 

How very often my own heart's been bruised and broken
When I'm looking back on all the things I've done
It's so hard to believe in the promise spoken
That He will complete in me the work that He's begun

 

So many time before I've had to learn the hard way
In any situation that I may be found
It's not what I think or feel  but only what does God say
That leads me to the place His blessings do abound..so I

 

If I get knocked down six times I'm still gonna get up seven
With every side street and detour I'm on the road to heaven
Through all of life's trials and tribulations I've still got a heart of joy
'Cause He's given me a faith hope and love that nothing can destroy

Take a Little Time

Sometimes I wake the day with a burden in my soul
Cause I know this life I live is spinning out of my control
Decisions and deadlines await me over and over again
Feels like the road I'm walking is in the middle of a hurricane
But I believe the Spirit lives within my heart
And I believe the Lord hears me when I cry to Him
Yes I believe God causes everything to work for good
And though I may not know where I?m going to end up
I know yes I know where I?ve got to begin
I know I've got to

 

Take a little time to pray and seek the Lord about it
Take a little time to pray when the world begins to crowd in
Take a little time to pray I know the Lords? going to work it out if I just

Take a little time to pray

 

You say you've lost your way you don't know what to do
Feels like the weight of the world's coming down on you
Before you reach for those pills, call your doctor on the phone
You need to know whatever yo'?re going through you're not alone
For if you believe the Spirit lives within your heart
And if you believe the Lord hears you when you cry to Him
Yes if you believe God causes everything to work for good
You may not may not know where you're going to end up
But you'll know where you've got to begin

You know you've got to..

 

We can stand together and share a special kind of love
Through trials and temptations I know w'?ll rise above
The seasons may get dark and cold and the times they may get tough
But if we'll open up our hearts to Him
Give Him all the pain we feel within
We'll finally come to see the light that in the Father's hand
Everything's going to be alright

If we just...

The Lord Looks upon the Heart

There was a boy named David shepherd of the fields
With seven older brothers full of courage strength and zeal
When the Lord told Samuel to chose a king
Nobody thought the young shepherd' be the one to reign

 

So every brother came before the prophet one by one
To seek the favor of the Lord but it was over and done
God's decision wasn't based on their ability
He's not inclined to such superficialities
'Cause the Lord don't see as a man sees
Man judges the appearance but the Lord Looks upon the heart

 

There was man named Saul a Pharisee from birth
Thought he was doing God's business persecuting the church
When the Lord looked down from His heavenly throne said
That's the kind of man I want to have for my own

 

The followers of Jesus must have been quite amazed
To see God choose a murderer to teach them grace
But it just goes to show how much they had to learn
That through the power of the spirit any heart can turn
'Cause the Lord don't see as a man sees
Man judges the appearance but the Lord Looks upon the heart

 

We have no mind to know no eyes to see
What make a man the way he is what shapes his destiny
So very often we have failed to understand
How ever far the sheep may stray he will never be
Beyond the Shepherd's saving hand

 

There is a man in your life that you see everyday
May be the job that you work or the place you play
And you've drawn your conclusions where he stands with the Lord
From what you've seen of his actions and the words you've heard

 

You say he can't be a christian 'cause he's not like you
For if he loves the Lord there are certain things he would not do
But just because he might gamble smoke curse or drink
He could be closer to heaven than you might think
'Cause the Lord don't see as a man sees
Man judges the appearance but the Lord Looks upon the heart

Raise Your Hands

So you're thinking that you've done some wrong
And it seems as though your saving grace is gone
You must remember child you should know
God loves you far too much to ever let you go

 

Remember you you're not the first to go astray
There is nothing you can do to make Him turn away
Remember you you are a child in His eyes
And there will never be a time He won't be by your side..if you just

 

Raise your hands up to the sky
Sayin' oh sweet Lord I need you in my life
You just raise your hands to the one above
Sayin' fill my heart sweet Lord with your love

 

The love of Jesus you can depend
When it seems as though your world's come to an end
Don't be mistaken thinking that you're all alone

'Cause he can reach right through and heal your heart of stone

 

Remember  Him who gave His life to set you free
Only He can lift you up where God wants you to be
Remember Him He is the truth the life and the way
And when no one is there for you Jesus hears you pray..if you just

 

Raise your hands up to the sky
Sayin' oh sweet Lord I need you in my life
You just raise your hands to the one above

Sayin' fill my heart sweet Lord with your

 

With your love your love
Come and fill this emptiness inside my soul
With your love Lord your love
Take what is broken in my life and make it whole
Lord make it whole

Faith Hope and Love

There're so many people who are living in this world
Such emptiness and sorrow fills  their days
Looking for the answers in a place they can't be found
Lost in the confusion of their way
s

 

Let me tell you from experience that I've been there before
When I felt the hopelessness of life would never end
But in my darkest hour was the answer to my prayer
In Jesus Christ the savior of all men... now I've got

 

Faith hope and love to open up the door
Giving me a peace and joy I've never known before
Faith hope and love has turned me inside out
Now I know what life is all about
So you can have all the treasures the world has to give
With faith hope and love I've got all I need to live

 

I want to sing of His salvation to everyone who lives
With fear and doubt and insecurity
Well satan's got them all believing they're not worth the love God gives

But by the power of His word they can be free

 

So if you're heavy in your heart and feelin' troubled in your mind
Come rest in Him who gave His life for you
Because there's victory in Jesus if you'll leave the world behind
And give Him praise in everything you do..then you'll have

 

Faith hope and love to open up the door
Giving you a peace and joy you've never known before
Faith hope and love will turn you inside out
Then you'll know what life is all about
So you can have all the treasures the world has to give

With faith hope and love you'll have all you need to live

 

I want to praise Him hallelujah I want to praise Him oh my Lord
I want to praise Him hallelujah for the power of His word
When I was alone with no one to care
You came and you saved me Lord from all of my despair
When I was a lost child dying in sin
You reached out your hand Lord and your love pulled me in
Now I'm standing here before you a prisoner set free
With only one reason why I've got the victory...I'm talkin' bout

 

Faith hope and love to open up the door

Giving me a peace and joy I've never known before
Faith hope and love has turned me inside out
Now I know what life is all about
So you can have all the treasures the world has to give
They say it makes you happy but I know it's just a myth
'Cause since i came to Jesus I know all I need to live is ...

Faith hope and love
